Python for the .NET Developer Transcripts
Chapter: Your setup
Lecture: DFollow along
0:00 Now, you're going to learn a bunch of cool little building blocks in Python throughout this course. How do I make a loop, how do I make a class
0:07 how do I create a web app, how do I, you know render a template of eight dynamic HTML and so on, and so on.
0:13 And these are super powerful to build up your toolbox but it's more fun to actually build a thing and I think you're going to learn a lot more.
0:22 So, when you're taking this course I encourage you to do a couple of things. Make sure you've cloned the git repository, of course
0:28 and then look through the C# version maybe even before we start that chapter. Play around with the code, it's usually one app
0:36 except for in the first chapter, the language one where there's a bunch of super small little features we're exploring to explore the C# code
0:42 maybe even before you start that chapter or right at the beginning as before we even dive into the first demo. We'll do that in the videos as well
0:49 but I think it'll help you to get a little bit more accurate sense of what that C# code is about and then try to recreate it in Python.
0:58 The goal of the course is to learn Python so don't start that first. Watch the chapter, and then once you're done with that chapter
1:06 go and just create a new Python project take the C# code, and try to recreate it. Of course, if you get stuck, don't let that be a big deal.
1:14 Just go back over to the real repository of the code you saw me write, and go oh yeah, that's how we do a for in loop, got it.
1:20 And then go back and keep working, or whatever, okay? So I think if you want to get the most out of this course
1:26 you should try to follow along, and try to build stuff and I think the way to do it here was to look at the C# code
1:32 and try to build the equivalent in Python. That's what we do in the videos and I think it'll be a fun way to reinforce what we learned.
1:39 We all love building things, right?
